Section 32 Agreements Now Require Additional Paperwork for Electronic Signatures
Over the summer, the Board introduced a new process for electronic signatures on Section 32 settlement agreements. The Board created a new form, the C-32E, which is used by insurance carriers, self-insured employers, and third-party administrators who provide an electronic signature on a Section 32 agreement. When the payer electronically signs a Section 32 settlement agreement, the person signing the agreement must also complete the new Board C-32E form and submit it with the Section 32 agreement that has the electronic signature. The Board will return unprocessed any Section 32 settlement agreements with an electronic signature that do not have form C-32E attached.
